A source from a Taiwanese producer reported that they implemented additional decreases on their import PS prices to China and Southeast Asia. The producer reduced their prices by $30/ton for GPPS and by $20/ton for HIPS.

The source commented, “Demand is quite slow at the moment due to lower monomer costs and declining crude oil prices while we are not able to sell profitably with the current price levels. Hence, we shut our GPPS plant and we are not planning to restart it before September. We also reduced our HIPS operating rates. We hope that the September outlook will be better.”

The producer’s PS offers currently stand at $1280/ton for GPPS and at $1360/ton for HIPS on a CFR China/CIF SEA, cash basis.
